    I never thought I'd feel sympathy for someone with a thick current of evil running through their veins. And then I read Wendy Heard's astonishing book. Twists more crooked than tree roots. Coal-dark tension with heart and a hero you just can't stop from wanting to find some happiness, ...

    3.5 Unexpected Stars for Hunting Annabelle It's no secret I enjoy reading about psychotic killers and aggressive, unremorseful sociopaths. Thrillers are my jam! Hunting Annabelle had all of that, along with a damaged MC that you can't help but feel some sympathy for. Yikes, did I...

    WOW...A jaw-dropping and twisted debut thriller! This book is unlike any book I?ve read. The more I read, the harder it was to put down. EXCERPT - ?Her scream echoes in my memory. I know what happened. Whether anyone believes me or not, I know.? Sean is a mentally ill young...

    Hunting Annabelle is solid 4 stars for me. A psychological thriller, it?s a dark and unique type of book. Sean spent three years in a psychiatric hospital (released way earlier than he was actually sentenced) for killing his girlfriend. Diagnosed as a schizophrenic, he now spends h...

    Holy hell! What an amazing roller coaster ride! I was hooked from page one and felt horrible for Sean even though he was a murderer. I never thought I could feel any kind of empathy for a murderer before but this book had me rooting for Sean the whole way through. I never knew what was...

    Sean Suh doesn?t do much with his days other than sitting in a park and drawing people he sees. He was in a psychiatric prison for three years and is considered rehabilitated but he?s not at sure he has been. He still has thoughts and urges that he shouldn?t have and his meds mak...

    This is a delicious and mysterious psychological thriller by a debut author, and I can?t wait to see what she writes next. This story will have you second-guessing every character and every event that occurs from start to finish. There?s so much suspense that it deserves all 5 ...

    I always get a bit excited when I see a Korean-American lead in a book. Even if he's one of the most unreliable narrators I've come across in a while! No one seems to believe him when he says he saw Annabelle get abducted so it's up to him to find her. In doing so, he finds himself - o...

    3.5 Unexpected Stars for Hunting Annabelle It's no secret I enjoy reading about psychotic killers and aggressive, unremorseful sociopaths. Thrillers are my jam! Hunting Annabelle had all of that, along with a damaged MC that you can't help but feel some sympathy for. Yikes, did I...

    Unfortunately, Hunting Annabelle wasn't the story for me. I did not like this. It started out promising, as the author's writing is actually quite strong, but the story, yeah, just did not do it for me. Around the 50% mark it turned for me and I never got my interest back. ...

    This book was super entertaining. The writing was great. The characters were interesting. It was well paced. The plot was engaging and full of twists and turns. I would have given it 5-Stars, but I thought the "twist" was a little far-fetched, and what in the heck happened to his (...

    Hunting Annabelle is a story of a mentally ill boy Sean looking for a girl he met a few days ago and who was kidnapped in front of his eyes. The problem is that nobody seems to believe Sean's story as he is a schisophrenic and might have just imagined it all. In addition, once the poli...

    I really struggled with this one. The ending saved it for me, or this would have been 2 stars. I realize that this is a debut, so I have to give credit for that alone...I envy anyone who can put anything on paper and get it published. With that said, this was just a bit all over...

    Hunting Annabelle is dark, twisted, and completely addictive. The characters will grab ahold of you and won't let go even after you've turned the last page. You'll both love and hate Sean and he'll leave you questioning everything you thought you knew about your own inner demons. Get t...

    Hunting Annabelle is solid 4 stars for me. A psychological thriller, it?s a dark and unique type of book. Sean spent three years in a psychiatric hospital (released way earlier than he was actually sentenced) for killing his girlfriend. Diagnosed as a schizophrenic, he now spends h...

    Holy hell! What an amazing roller coaster ride! I was hooked from page one and felt horrible for Sean even though he was a murderer. I never thought I could feel any kind of empathy for a murderer before but this book had me rooting for Sean the whole way through. I never knew what was...

    Sean Suh doesn?t do much with his days other than sitting in a park and drawing people he sees. He was in a psychiatric prison for three years and is considered rehabilitated but he?s not at sure he has been. He still has thoughts and urges that he shouldn?t have and his meds mak...

    This is a delicious and mysterious psychological thriller by a debut author, and I can?t wait to see what she writes next. This story will have you second-guessing every character and every event that occurs from start to finish. There?s so much suspense that it deserves all 5 ...
